Supply List: construction paper, white paper, markers/permanent markers, scissors, glue/glue stick, and a stamp pad. You can always add glitter or more to your list to fit your style.

Start off with a clean white sheet of paper and use your kiddos fingers and a stamp pad make your first stamp to create a body for the butterfly.  Then on each side put 2 fingerprints to represent the wings.


Next, using a pen or a black permanent marker, add the details such as a smiley face to the butterfly. Add some flutters and more to your design. I also drew a heart around it so that I could cut it out in the shape of a heart. DSCN0503a
